About Us

Llangatwg is a school that is forward looking and is committed to delivering the very best education for children. In the most recent inspection report of 2012, Estyn stated that Llangatwg has ‘high expectations and a very purposeful working atmosphere that result in very high standards of achievement.’ The focus on high expectations and achievement is something that permeates the school and is underpinned by our belief that every child can and will succeed. Standards and outcomes are extremely important to us and we are recognised as one of the leading school’s in Neath Port Talbot and Wales in terms of standards at Key Stage 3 and 4. Llangatwg is very much a family school and the purposeful environment and atmosphere of the school is one where children tend to thrive. The school has been recognised at a national level for the standard of care support and guidance that we offer and is only the second school in Wales to receive the Pupil Participation Kite Mark. As a school we are committed to developing the ‘whole child’ and the wealth of extra-curricular opportunities on offer to our children is second to none. An array of activities take place most lunchtimes and evenings including, horse riding, surfing, table tennis, extra-revision sessions, music, drama and sporting fixtures. We are fortunate to have excellent facilities and the most up to date ICT equipment, which enable children to develop their interests whatever they might be.
